To Dad

Dad, although I never met you, it is evident you were a truly amazing person based on all the lives you touched. I often think of why things turned out the way they did but I know one day we will be reunited. I have tried to live a life full of pride and integrity; qualities that you display in a life cut too short. I miss you dearly, your son Jeff Gordon.

2nd-47th Mech Infantry Honors Fallen Brother

To Drannon Gordon, our 2nd-47th Brother: We who served so proudly with you want to let you know that we have established a Memorial Scholarship to honor your memory and the ultimate sacrifice that you and the other 195 brave soldiers of the 2nd-47th Mechanized Infantry made while serving our country in Vietnam in 1966-1970. Our wish is that this Memorial Scholarship conveys the highest tribute possible to each of you because it comes from the hearts of the soldiers who served with you. It represents the everlasting and inexpressible gratitude we feel for your sacrifice. We got to live the lives that you were deprived of, and this scholarship is one small way of expressing our sorrow for your loss and our appreciation for the magnitude of what you gave. Many of you brave young soldiers sacrificed your own lives to save one of us, and we have carried heartfelt memories of you for nearly four decades. This perpetual Memorial Scholarship is our way of being sure that the memories of love, honor, and respect we feel for you, our Panther Brothers lost in combat, will live on forever. [If you are a 2nd-47th veteran, or a friend or family member of one of our fallen Brothers, and would like more information about how to support or apply for our Memorial Scholarship, information is available at www.247scholarship.org ]

Granddaughter's Name

While submitting our remembrance of Drannon I was jazzing around about the spelling of the Granddaughter's name and ended up spelling her name the way I do. I'm always acting crazy with Jeff and Joy, her real name is Jade Alexandria and not Shade. I just needed to correcy this before the other one was posted.
